    I took this photo over the Wash in eastern England. The photo was intentionally under exposed to bring out the orange... but this had an effect on the water. To me it looks like a sea of oil. I think it came out more interesting because of it.

    Definately interesting...
    Don't know if I would have thought it was oil if you would not have said anything. I guess I just assumed the sun was so bright it shadowed the ocean...

    I find the exposure very nice. It's true to a calm, setting sun.
    Nice simple composition :thumbup:

    Thanks.

    It probably depends on your computer monitor. Mine has been calibrated so that I have a pure white, white point and rich blacks.

    Okay, I get it...you are right, my monitor shows the sea as a very dark blue...
